Rare Bird Encounters on Espanola Island, Galapagos

Thousands of waved albatross nest on a rocky cliff and this is the only place in the world you will see this critically endangered bird breeding. Blue-footed boobies contrast Nazca boobies, great colonies of them hopping before your eyes. 

Galapagos hawks circle high above, scanning for exposed eggs and vibrant lizards. You’ll find marine iguanas and mockingbirds out here as well, on the oldest Galapagos island. 

This shield volcano is incredibly diverse and you will find remarkable bird encounters, including albatross beak kissing. There’s also snorkeling and kayaking around Espanola Island to consider.
